The marked snowshoe tour at the end of the valley of the Diemtigtal Nature Park leads you through the home of the Waldmandli Grimmimutz to the wildlife observation station. Here you will learn exciting facts about our wild animals and, with a bit of luck, discover the ibex colony with the telescope. It is almost obligatory to stop and enjoy the view down into the valley on the Nidegg slope - do you know the surrounding peaks of the Diemtigtal?
If you want, you can tackle the ascent from Nidegg to the top station of the Grimmialp chairlift (1 km). Here, however, the trail is not marked and caution is advised when crossing pistes.
The snowshoe tour takes you from the Senggiweid car park, climbing slightly, to the area of the Waldmandli Grimmimutz. After the Sennhütte Nidegg, the route runs along the wildlife observation hike through the Nidegg forest to the wildlife observation station. The descent leads across snow-covered alpine pastures of the Nidegg down to the starting point. The view down into the valley provides a worthy conclusion to the tour.
The hiking time depends on the amount of snow and the nature of the route as well as your physical condition.
On site you will find moderately steep terrain with occasionally steeper passages in the ascent and descent. A certain level of surefootedness is required for the tour.
Respect your boundaries and thus the habitat of our animals and plants: The tour shows you the most beautiful places away from the wildlife sanctuaries.
